Author: 0 ESPN releases updated top-5 rankings after Week 9 action

I wouldn't be completely shocked if the committee goes with Georgia at No. 1 on Tuesday for that reason. The Buckeyes (7-1) made a big statement on Saturday by taking down unbeaten Penn State in a 39-38 thriller in the Horseshoe. Ohio State moved up three places after rallying to beat then-No. The Irish wrap up the regular season on the road at #18 Stanford. The Badgers should run the table, but need to win the Big Ten title game to make the playoff because their schedule isn't strong.

The way it works is that fictional players, who appear once depictions of real players retire in the video game, come out and managers find out via a news item which arrives in their inbox. 'I just think it's insane that in 2017 we are in a world where people can't be themselves'.

The Germans are only three points clear of Celtic and lag behind runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain. Griffiths scored Celtic's goal after being reinstated by Rodgers to the starting line-up.

His absence was keenly felt, with the Merseysiders having often looked in dire straits when attempting to defend against the pace of the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray. I wanted to be courageous and positive in the first half. "The best tactics I thought was with a diamond and two strikers". Second-half, for me, was what we should be all about but we can't play in 45-minute spells.
